Itchy rash w red spots between breasts. Also my 19 year old

This answer was rated:

Itchy rash w red spots between breasts. Also my 19 year old c-section scar is very irritated, itchy and similar red rash. Both problems for about 10 days now.

How big are these red spots?

Do you have any dandruff on the scalp?

Is it possible to take a photograph of the rash?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.

The red spots between the breasts are very small, like the size of the head of a pin. And raised. Less red spots now than a few days ago but very itchy. I find myself scratching during sleep.

No dandruff on the scalp.

The c-section scar is very irritated and very itchy.

Is there a way to send you a cell phone photo?

Thank you for the information. Sounds like Seborrheic dermatitis.

Here is what I would recommend:

1% Cortizone cream + 2% Miconazole cream: Mix in a 1:1 proportion and apply over affected area twice a day for 14 days even if the rash disappears sooner.

Tab Claritin 10 mg twice a day for 7 days and then once a day for 7 days more.

Nivea soap free body wash for cleaning the affected area while bathing. Do not use regular soap there.

NOTE: All of the above are available over the counter.
